Celtics lose, but still clinch home court — Sunday's National Basketball Association roundup

NETS 108, PACERS 96: D'Angelo Russell scored 20 points and Joe Harris added 19, leading Brooklyn to a win at Indianapolis and back into the National Basketball Association playoffs for the first time in four years. The Magic are 40-40 and are tied with the Brooklyn Nets for sixth in the East. Boston, however, came up short missing a few three-point attempts under 2:00 left in the game that would have either given the Celtics a lead or brought them within a point of tying the game.

Who has made the playoffs? "Nobody knows what I've been through in the last six years here, just through all the losing, the struggling, the doubting", Vucevic said.

"We have to understand that while we're obviously close, nothing is finished yet". After chasing Evan Fournier down the lane, he bumped into Magic center Nikola Vucevic and crashed to the ground, holding his side. Just go out there and get a good feel for the Pacers. In their most recent game on Friday night. the Magic turned on the pressure in a 149-113 drubbing of the Atlanta Hawks.

BUCKS 115, HAWKS 107: Giannis Antetokounmpo scored 30 points and Khris Middleton added 21 to send Milwaukee to a methodical victory at home, giving the Bucks 60 wins in a season for the first time since 1981.

After tonight's matchup against the Celtics, the Magic finish the season against the Charlotte Hornets, who also have an outside shot at making the playoffs.

Now, though, they have to wait to find out if a couple of injured Celtics will be ready when Boston's postseason begins here against the Indiana Pacers next weekend.
